Just some photos of the Guts of my 4800. Looks like I need a new video card/power supply to run G5!

For a upcoming RC Groups review. Going electric naturally.

Initial impression is this is the BEST model yet from Black Horse. See Hobby Peoples website for further details

Boy, I wonder how man little <and no so little> good little boys and girls got one of these this Christmas? You can bet Ill have the review of this one in right quick as I have all next week off.

Looks like a miniature version of the larger Super Cub and if it's 1/2 as good it will bring a lot of new fliers into this hobby successfully.

Ok might as well log whats new with the Wolrd Models 51.

Removed the tail weight. Were now at or about 75mm C of G, well ahead of the 88mm Wolrd Models suggests.

Servos are now in the top wing ala combat style. No more stripped servos for me! <Ugly as sin I know!>

Thinking about a new design chin scoop, perhaps a magnet to hold it on as the last two got knocked off on the belly flop.

Last chance hotel for this model. The gear goes to another model if this bird dosen't fly!

Thought I might post some notes in here as to keep track of the Zero.

Tail wheel came loose 2nd flight. Repaired but must keep track of that. My hats off to Tom Hunt flying his free castering ME-109s!

1/8 gear is holding up well despite the fact this Zeke lands hot.

Speaking of hot the air exit holes in the back fixed that trouble.

Need to cut some fuel tube to secure the pushrods on the flight control surfaces before next flight.

Crabs.... got to love em!

As always a big thanks to Jimsky for the great photos.

A friend recently built a Multiplex Glider. I figured I needed something to harasses his <or anyone else’s> gliders. So I put together this Terry.

A failed experiment in using women’s pantyhose <thanks MAN> instead of the usual .50 glass cloth.

Powered by a Mega 5T it's sporting just under 200W for a cost of 18A or so.

I hope it's like an annoying little gnat amongst the sailplanes!
